One year after his fall, Nick Fairall spoke about what had happened at a press conference in Bischofshofen. He found moving words and thanked everyone for the huge support. “I’m so thankful for what everyone has done for me. People I don’t even know, fellow jumpers, fans of the sport. I can’t even find words. It speaks highly of our ski jumping community, it’s absolutely outstanding.”
“As a result of this injury i had a choice. I could have chosen to sit down and feel sorry for myself, be really sad and just stay home and do nothing. Or I could go out and do the things that I enjoy doing. And that’s one of the main things I’ve decided. Regardless of where I am I’m still moving forward and enjoy my life. I encourage everyone to do the same.”
